confessions of a superhero

I stumbled upon an interesting documentary on Sundance on DemandConfessions Of A Superhero.  

CONFESSIONS OF A SUPERHERO explores the fascination, obsession and allure of fame through the eyes of some very unique people struggling to make it in Tinseltown.

I wasn’t much into comic books or superhero action figures growing up as a kid, so I guess I’m at a disadvantage in understanding what it must be like for the individuals documented in the film.  To love their superhero of choice and want to  dress up every day and be Superman or Batman or Wonder Woman for tips; I don’t know if I can make sense of that.

There existed in this film an element of hope that existed in each of the individuals documented.  Yet there also existed a certain degree of personal disappointment and near regreat.  I’m not sure how to process the information shared in the film.  So for now I’ll withhold  my thumbs up or down verdict.

I will say there were some amazing photography throughout the film; along with some engaging backdrops and angles used in the cinematography.

I guess it’s fair to say that if you have an extra 90 minutes give Confessions… a watch, it’s worth that at least.
